This is possibly one of the most interesting shows out there, though that doesn’t necessarily mean you should watch it.

Easy follows the lives of several Chicagoans through love, sex, and career choices. Almost every episode has a new focus, though some intertwine and you’ll see a few characters pop up in multiple episodes.

More often than not, you’ll feel like you’re watching something too personal. A feeling of guilt will overcome you because it’ll seem you’re invading the characters’ ultra personal lives. However, there are so many stories to connect with that feel genuinely real.

Two outstanding episodes feature a couple (Michael Chernus and Elizabeth Reaser) in a sex slump and another couple (Malin Åkerman and Orlando Bloom) who enter a threesome with their friend (Kate Micucci).

Final say: Captivating but uncomfortable. ★★★☆☆
